In the next of our exclusive ‘Luxury Christmas Gifts For…’ articles, we look at some Christmas present ideas for some members of the family who are often overlooked, the cousins.
Depending on the family, cousins can be as close as brothers or sisters, or can seem like distant relatives. With a few extra-special presents, though, buying for cousins can be relatively easy. Here we take a look at the finest luxury Christmas Christmas gifts for your cousin out there.

Not just for readers of AA Hartely, this fly fishing private tutorial gift is the perfect present for any nature loving cousin. This 4-hour lesson is aimed at anyone, whether this is your first time in waders or whether you are seasoned fly fisher. Your expert teacher will be able to tailor the lesson to the skills and needs of the guest. A unique and quirky gift which might just inspire the cousin to take up a new hobby – one for which they will thank you for many years to come.
Photography as a hobby is on the increase but, with increasing costs in technology, often people don’t travel and therefore fail to snap some of the world’s most picturesque locations. Treat your photograph loving cousins to a 5-star break in Istanbul, the gateway to Asia.
Hugely historic, and with a diverse culture, Istanbul provides everything a keen photographer could ask for – from architectural to interesting characters. Based from a 5-star hotel, for two nights, you have a five hour private tour with an ex-National Geographic editor and photographer so you really will visit all of this amazing city’s highlights.
A truffle hunt is something that stretches back through the ages and nowhere is it more famed than in the Langhe – arguably home to Italy’s richest culinary scene. This gift really is a quite amazing experience and won’t fail to appeal to anyone who loves travel, culture and food.
A three night stay in luxury accommodation in Piedmont, Italy, it includes a host of activities such as a trip to hunt for the most prestigious of truffles. Also enjoy Michelin star dinning at the Grinzane Cavour Castle and a private VIP wine tasting at a top winery and a private guided WiMu Museum visit, coupled with a private guided visit to stunning Turin.
